The book also presents quantitative research on a sample of 400 professionals (educators, medical assistants, psychologists, and social workers), aimed at identifying the need for supervision, the understanding and acceptance level of supervision, the advantages of supervision, as well as the burnout and brain-drain levels of professionals supplying direct services to their clients. The book is the result of a postdoctoral grant and will appeal to a wide range of professionals such as social workers, psychologists, medical assistants and doctors, teachers, researchers, as well as to all those interested in the field of social work and willing to develop professionally and personally.

Stress is a fact of modern life. And as more and more people face greater financial insecurity, longer work hours, and the increasingly complex personal and social demands of our fast-paced, multi-tasking, high-tech lifestyle, finding healthy ways to handle stress is more important than ever. In Bounce: Living the Resilient Life, Robert Wicks shows you not just how to manage stress, but how to transform stressful situations into opportunities to live a more meaningful, self-aware, and compassionate life. Wicks makes available to everyone techniques he has used for over 30 years in helping physicians, nurses, psychotherapists, educators, social workers, ministers, and relief workers not only survive but flourish in highly stressful occupations. You'll learn a wide range of methods--normally reserved for those in helping and healing professions--to help you bounce back from stress and live life to the fullest. Bounce shows you how to: · Recognize the insidious nature of denial and avoidance as responses to stress · Employ psychologically powerful approaches to self-awareness · Improve self-talk through the use of cognitive behavioral principles · Apply daily-debriefing techniques · Utilize a structured reflection guide to uncover areas that require special attention · Incorporate silence, solitude, and mindfulness into daily life · Stop the drain of valuable emotional energy caused by toxic life situations and unexamined attitudes and beliefs · And much more Most important, Bounce helps you develop your own self-care protocol and personal renewal program, based on an honest assessment of your needs, life situation, and habitual ways of dealing--or failing to deal--with stress. Insightful, practical, and filled with wise guidance, Bounce shows us all how to live with greater resilience in a world that grows more stressful by the day.

With over 50,000 copies sold, Riding the Dragon has for a decade made itself an indispensable spiritual and psychological guide to readers experiencing seasons of adversity. This anniversary edition includes a new introduction from the author with personal reflections and fresh perspectives on today's challenges. "Don't try to slay your dragons; learn to ride them!" Drawing on Eastern and Western traditions, psychologist Robert Wicks emboldens readers to face life's difficulties--the "dragons" that escape from the cave. Readers will find guidance and encouragement to engage problems as a means to growth and transformation, to ride their dragons rather than slay them or drive them back into their cave. Wicks fashions ten simple lessons on identifying and confronting the everyday dragons readers meet: from engaging darkness to finding simplicity to keeping perspective.
